Arty Tuesday: Barkus 2002

For February I’m featuring the limited edition posters issued to support Barkus, which is a parade of dogs to benefit the Louisiana SPCA.  Matt Rinard has been the artist who creates the poster each year and I love them.

This poster is a bit of a mystery. The official title is Freedom’s Best Friend and the poster obviously is a play on the famous Patton image. But if you look at the actual paper you can tell that an original title was inked over and replaced. Wonder what it was called first? Of course, this theme was in response to 9/11.
